Turn THE BEST traditional chocolate chip cookies into something truly irresistible with the addition of cookie butter! Extra rich, extra chewy, and the perfect blend of sweet with a hint of salty these are completely decadent.
3/4 cup butter softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup cookie butter (like Biscoff spread)
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
2 cups flour
1 3.4 ounce box instant French vanilla pudding mix – dry, not prepared (must be INSTANT – not cook and serve, etc.)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a bowl, cream together butter, sugar, brown sugar, and cookie butter for 1 to 2 minutes until light and very fluffy. Add vanilla, egg and egg yolk, and mix well. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, pudding mix, baking soda and salt.
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until incorporated and dough comes together. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover very tightly and chill for at least 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Roll dough into balls (about 1 1/2 inch) and space 2 to 3 inches apart on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until lightly browned on top. Allow to cool 5 to 10 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.
